    2002 Clinton Portis Game Worn Miami Hurricanes Rose Bowl Helmet. One of the more significant college game-worn pieces to hit the auction block in recent memory, this stunning Hurricanes shell was worn by flashy superstar running back Clinton Portis during his team's dominating 37-14 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2002 Rose Bowl.

    Accompanied by a letter of provenance from team equipment manager, this was the very shell Portis wore while tallying 104 yards and a 39-yard touchdown, which propelled his team to an 11-0 record and the National Title.

    Exhibiting solid wear throughout, it displays a silver eye guard on the front, while his No. 28 decal is on the back, as is the Bowl game decals and american flag (each of which may have been replaced, as most from the Hurricanes locker room sale were). A true hobby rarity from one of the most highly collectible college teams in the nation. Letter of provenance from Hurricanes equipment manager. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
